We travelled as a couple, visiting relatives. The quality of the hotel, furniture, bathroom fixtures, etc. was very high, even comparable to more expensive hotels. You can usually receive discounts, but not in late December. Even though the price at this time of year was slightly higher than normal, it was still very reasonable. The room was $89.00 per night. However, there is also an $11.00 parking fee per night, so $100.00 per night. As I said, you will get lower rates at non-peak times. You get high quality for the price.
All of the room fixtures, furniture, decorations, etc. seemed newish or new. The staff that we encountered were all very friendly, even though they were working at Christmas time. All key cards worked perfectly the first time at building and room entrances. There was one exception to this. The entrance to the gated parking lot took two tries with the key card, but the parking area was gated and fenced. Outside entrances to the building opened the first time and locked quickly behind us. We felt very secure and safe here.
One other very nice touch was the room locations. We had relatives that booked rooms at this same hotel. Even though they booked their rooms days before we reserved ours, our rooms were on the same hall and very near each other. This was very convenient and helpful, and this was unlikely to have been an accident.
All of the expected amenities are available - exercise room, business office and so forth. We only used the free breakfast. It was basic but good. Eggs were boiled. And as I said, there was no extra charge.
I failed to mention that everything was very clean and the beds were very comfortable.
To summarize, this is a very high quality hotel for the price, which seemed very reasonable for what you receive. We recommend it and will likely return.
